to me.. its like comparing ksyrium ssc sl to ksyrium elite... go for the Extralite... never rode them but this compagny make good pieces.. i think they're thrustable
Extralite is crap, expect wheels like that to last you 500 miles, they are built for special events, not every day use.
The Velomax on the other hand are very durable, I use to own the Ascent II's. They are sweet wheels, fairly stiff, but if I ever bought velomax again I would not get them, but instead get the orions.
ever used any Extralite products?
If not you might want to consider using someone's product before trashing it.
I've got cranks and stem from them with no complaints.
I've also crashed with a stem of theirs which is still in use 5 years later ( the bike was totalled as was my ankle.)
I don't particularily like CR1s or Cannodale. In the first instance I'll hold fire until I've looked one over and
have ridden it. As far as Cannondale are concerned whilst they have produced some interesting bikes, I can't stand them as acompany and would never part with my hard earned cash due to my experience of their customer "service" attitude in Europe.
